Recently visited Jeni's near the campus of Vanderbilt University. When we pulled up the was a long line outside. Inside we found very unusual flavors and a staff that encourages you to taste different flavors. If you order a small you can still get two flavors. If you are in the neighborhood definitely stop by.

Great ice cream! Really fun and unusual flavors and perfect portions. It was very crowded when we went, but the line moved fast.

We stopped for some ice cream. You can sample as many flavored you wish, which I would recommend as there are lots of unique flavors. We each ordered something different, and we were pleased. We are staying close by and am hoping to stop in again.

This is a foodies delight. We made two special trips to experience this Ice cream. It was so worth it!!! Strong flavors that melt in your mouth. You can sample as many as you want before deciding. You will wish all ice cream shops had this range of delicious options.

This place is amazing. Every flavor is unique but awesome. They have great sundaes, I can't get enough of this place. Always get when in Nashville. They are way overpriced... But ice cream is too good not to give 5!

Have wanted to try Jeni's for a long time. Very, very good w/ interesting flavor combos. Between the three of us we sampled atleast 10 flavors...some better than others. Some didn't seem quite sweet enough. Price and portion size was great! Place was packed out the door even late on a Thurs evening. Appreciate a small chain and would definitely... More

I often go into ice cream places in my travels. I don't generally get surprised. Here the names are so imaginative it took me a lot of reading to determine what I wanted. Not cheap but very good. Very friendly staff.

I loved the texture of the icecream but I didn't enjoy the flavor selection. No traditional flavors. I mean who doesn't offer chocolate chip icecream???

We checked this place out on a bustling Friday night. There was a bit of a line, but it moved quickly as they were staffed to handle a rush. The flavors were interesting options, everything we tried was excellent. There was plenty of seating inside and out. Worth a visit if you are in Nashville!

We really loved all the unique flavors, including lavender, birch, and several berry combinations. It was hard to narrow the choices down since almost all of them (and there were a lot) sounded delicious. The only issue is the prices seem really high, especially for the packaged ice creams. For example, the make your own float kit- $30 is a... More

Description
We decided to open our first full-size scoop shop in Nashville in June, 2011 in the East Nashville neighborhood for many reasons, but mainly because the place reminded us so much of our scrappy roots. East Nashville, home to cyclists and pedestrians, families and urban farmers, artists and musicians of all stripes, and do-it-yourself bar and restaurant owners, is one of our favorites places in the country. Since we've been in East Nashville, we've been able to cultivate partnerships with folks such as Don Henry, who grows strawberries for us to make the perennial favorite Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk, as well as the good people at Yazoo Brewing Company, who supplies Yazoo Sue porter for the year-round ice cream Yazoo Sue with Rosemary Bar Nuts. There's a fantastic creative community and overall vibe throughout Nashville-especially in East Nashville.
